Lewisville ISD Board Finalizes Single-Member Districts, At-Large Seats
The changes will go into effect with the May 2024 Board election
The Lewisville ISD Board of Trustees at its August 28 meeting finalized the district’s plan to transition to five single-member districts and two at-large seats beginning in the May 2024 Board election.
Each of these five districts are substantially equal in total population as required by law, based upon 2020 Census summary population counts. “Substantially equal” means that each district is as close as practically possible to the exact mathematical ideal of 63,708 persons in a district, i.e., one-fifth of the total population of LISD. In addition to prioritizing the combined voting strength of Hispanics and Black residents, the districts also ensured four of the five districts represent two high school feeder patterns.
The current “Places” will now be referred to as SIngle Member Districts 1-5. All trustees may serve out their current term. The election dates for the new Districts and At-Large places are as follows:
Single Member District 1 - May 2024
Single Member District 2 - May 2025
Single Member District 3 - May 2025
Single Member District 4 - May 2026
Single Member District 5 - May 2026
At Large Place 6 - May 2024
At Large Place 7 - May 2025
LISD Board Statement
The Board remains steadfast in its belief that every Trustee represents every student across our 127-square mile district, and not just those in close proximity to the residence of a Trustee. We will work together as we always have to ensure Lewisville ISD continues to engage and inspire learners and leaders, and that all the families we serve feel a sense of belonging in our schools.
*The Board expects to have a more detailed map so voters can determine their voting district by the end of September.

LEWISVILLE ISD RESOLVES VOTING RIGHTS LAWSUIT
The district will transition to five single-member districts and two at-large seats
The Lewisville ISD Board of Trustees announces the resolution of the Voting Rights Act lawsuit and the transition to a new system for electing trustees. The Board at its August 28 meeting will hold a public hearing, as required by law, on the transition to five single-member districts and two at-large seats, replacing the existing seven at-large seats. The first elections under the new system are expected to take place in May 2024.
The Board believes that each member must represent every student, parent, and community member in Lewisville ISD, not simply the individuals residing within their neighborhood or their respective district. The Board is confident the proposed electoral system will ensure that a broad cross-section of the communities served by LISD are represented on the Board.
Throughout the process leading to this change, the Board worked tirelessly and collaboratively to maintain its focus on the district’s vision that all students are confident, equipped with the knowledge and skills to thrive and adapt for their future.
The LISD Board of Trustees is excited for this school year and the future of the district. We will move forward as a Board the way we always have; we are all here for ALL students across all 127 miles as ONE Lewisville ISD.
